I don't know why people are having trouble with the sound, the sound is the best I've ever experienced, especially in full 7.1, the mapping is perfect and the dialogue is spot on. I guess it's more optimised for surround sound.

Still another 3 weeks or so until I'm letting myself play this. If I play it now I might as well wave goodbye to my University degree, so waiting until I finish this term for Christmas and have 4 weeks off to play it.

Hmmmm..... she hasn't died on me yet; in fact I thought she was invincible
Apparently if you accidentally hit her during a fight (when she's close to 'dying'), that's her death knell. NPC vs NPC - she gets back up. PC vs NPC, she don't.

I had so many sparks and flames/shouts going on I probably wiped her out



And I've had no issues with sound either. No major bugs encountered yet tbh. Then again I'm far behind in gameplay time by comparison and don't play for 'that long' at a stretch so I'm sure the treats are still in store...

And that's the problem itself. I only have 2 speakers with 1 subwoofer, I don't have surround sound.

A very wise idea

Yeah that'll probably do it

She does tend to get in your way though. I've also accidentally hit helpers, only to then be attacked by them. That makes me backup to a previous save less I kill my attacker

The game is rife with bugs, but nowhere near the show stoppers of New Vegas. And though I too have no sound issues, the net is full of people who do

Yeah the game actually has some content to it with lots of sides quest so it is time consuming

No, I think it's possible for an NPC to kill her too. One time, I fast traveled the hell out of a location after a dungeon, and she wasn't with me. I went and got married, and on the wedding day her corpse was just inside the church. I guess nobody liked dead people at a wedding, so I got yelled at by all the people there (including the person I was going to marry and the priest).

After I became leader of the "companions" You get to have about 8 more people as followers, so your not stuck with Lidia or anyone you have to pay for in the taverns. (plus,if you join the companions and do all there quests, you get some very cool surprises).

Also I had this dog as a follower for a while,but he can't carry anything for me, and barks at every living thing, so why have one...unless the dog could be like one of those in Dragon age, or maybe a wolf...

That was why I let her go. One too many stupid moves. Between running into the line of fire and ruining a good sneak, her cons outweighed her pros.

That could also be part of my 'luck'. I didn't encounter the real show stopper Vegas bugs until later because I was always off doing side quests. It was only when I went back to the main quest/areas that I noticed how bloody woeful some parts were.

Same with Skyrim. I don't think I've been to the 'crashy' areas yet...

lol, I heard about her corpse appearing at weddings, or she'll be lying dead inside a home.

Apparently she can also die from falls. Glitch deaths?

Either way she's still a nuisance in death as she was in life

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
